Do you have trouble with edema? Have you went to a doctor? My sister has lots of trouble with edema in her legs, and several years ago she had leg ulcers, that she was positive weren't because they didn't look like what a lady she knew had diagnosed as leg ulcers. My sister was also too stubborn to go to a doctor because she had to find somebody to take her or else ride her electric scooter, four blocks. Anyway they kept getting worse, and oozing, finally she ended up in one hospital near her home town for a few days and they couldn't get them under control, so they made arrangements for an ambulance to take her to a hospital in the largest city in our state, and she was there for a month.

The ulcers were so infected a person could smell it way down the hall from her room. There was awhile the doctors thought she would lose at least one leg, and maybe both. The infection was finally brought under control, and there was awhile that she was on some kind of pill that was $1,000 a month. Every now and then she will get the start of an ulcer and she gets it tended to right away. After she went home from the hospital she had to have a nurse come to her home and do skin abrasion like they do on burn victims. She said that was so painful she cried when it was being done.

Try using some petroleum jelly and wrap them. My Dad has a very small one that is being treated by his Hospice nurse. She used the petroleum strips and wrapped it in gauze.

I've found the petroleum jelly works really well for lots of stuff and is very cheap! I use it on my feet and elbows, really makes the skin soft, but has lots of good healing properties too. Hope this helps you.

I also had leg blisters. They were diagnosed as Cellulitis. They were infected, sore, horrible looking. I was sent to the Wound Clinic where the Dr. had the nurse wrap my leg with a salve on the bandage. I went home and started drinking more Aloe Juice which I'd been drinking. I was drinking 16 oz a night.

A week later, I went back to the Dr. who was amazed, said he could not believe my leg "healed" in a week as his patients come for a year. The blisters, infection, pain has never returned as long as I drink Aloe Juice. I buy it in the pharmacy section, $6.99, a gallon, at Publix grocery store. It is also available at Wal-Mart for $7.99. It is very healthy for your body. My sister says it clears arteries. That makes sense as it cleared the infection out of my leg in a week.

You need to see a doctor to find out what they are. When I was in school, someone who sat at the same desk as me in one of my classes had impetago. I fought that infection over and over again the entire school year.

I finally realized that if I kept my legs covered at all times: nylons, opaques, pants, long skirts, etc, I would not get it. But I had to wash my clothes in HOT water. Impetago is extremely contagious.

This sounds like something a doctor should deal with. Why are you getting blisters on your legs?
